Joe Williams
Sally MacPhail, Sentinel
Frank Murphy was present to ask Council to consider allowing 4 foot sidewalks at
Village Green. Mr. Murphy stated that he realized the Village requires five foot
sidewalks but in this area, it would allow more grass area from the curb to the walk. Mr.
Murphy stated this suggestion is not being made to save money, but it be pleasing to the more eye and a safety issue too.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Mr. Murphy should make a recommendation to the Street &Sidewalk Committee.
Councilmember Garrett stated the Council had been through similar situations before. Council decided that sidewalks must be five foot.
Mayor Eisenberg agreed the matter had already been discussed. Mayor Eisenberg thanked Mr. Murphy for his comment.
Maxine Montgomery was present to obtain background on why fast food restaurants are being discussed in east Granville.
Mayor Eisenberg informed Mrs. Montgomery that the issue started out to define fast food restaurants in the commercial area in east Granville. The intent of the ordinance to define fast food would be to gain more control on the area. The ordinance on the agenda tonight would change all restaurants to conditional uses. BusineMssrs. Montgomery asked why council made the zoning change to Surban District.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council regrets making that change. At the time Council was following the guidelines of the Comprehensive Plan and the Planning

Commission's recommendations. Mayor Eisenberg stated he doesn't believe council
can reverse the zoning, however Council is trying to take step to control development.
Mrs. Montgomery stated that she respected Council for being straightforward
and can appreciate them making a mistake and trying to correct it as best as possible.
Frank Murphy stated that the Comprehensive Plan call for the area to be zoned
commercial. I last week's Sentinel, the paper made several false statements. Mr.

anything.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Councilmember Herman reported on the Ordinance Review Committee's meeting of
June 14. At that meeting, the committee reviewed the language in Ordinance No. 12-93
and broadened the list for conditional uses. The committee recommends passing
Ordinance No. 12-93 as amended.
Councilmember Freytag stated this is an ongoing effort and the committee would
be making more recommendations.
Councilmember Freytag reported on the Old Colony Cemetery meeting of June 7. At
that meeting, the committee received a $11, 000 gift. At the present time, it is unclear if
the person wishes to remain anonymous or not. This month, people are returning to
work on the cemetery to continue restoring it. The storage shed that will be built on the
south edge on the cemetery was also discussed.
Councilmember Herman asked if there was a plan to remove the "abandon"
truck that is parked by the cemetery.
Councilmember Freytag stated that the truck was not on the Cemetery property.
However, he believes Council passed legislation allowing the village to remove the junk
vehicles.
Zoning Inspector Doug Tailford stated that the ordinance states junk motor
vehicles must have acceptable cover. Council must decide what is an acceptable
cover.
Mayor Eisenberg stated council should give the zoning inspector the power to
decide what an acceptable cover is.
Law Director Hurst stated he would like to review the Ordinance concerning junk
vehicles before the zoning inspector receives the power to decide what is acceptable.
Mayor Eisenberg stated Rufus and Doug Tailford would make a recommendation
to council about the "junk truck"by the cemetery.
